    I agree, just wondering out loud here...why make it two pieces? Why not just one piece, essentially a giant flap that seals the end up for inclement weather, with a small opening at top for the suspension. I mean, if you are going to use this piece it's because bad weather or cold weather is impending, I doubt I would use doors on my tadpole deployed but open...again, just thinking out loud here.

    That would work well with a 3 sided approach if a sealed end is most important. You would need to run the suspension through the hole, though. This makes it difficult to add/remove/swap ends on a whim. Also limits for those who want 2 doors and need a way to enter/exit their setup. With the velcro i think you get the best of both worlds at the cost of a few ounces.

    At least from my perspective... Removable means moveable... Storms in Texas change directions, winds and rain included... So being able to move the door end once setup would save you the trouble of having to rehang the whole tarp... But if you were in a place that storms came from the same direction all the time, I guess that would work...

    It makes it easier to get in and out, especially if you have one on each end. I have some doors on my HH Hex, affixed with Velcro on the end edges of the tarp. It keeps the rain out, but to get in I have to pull one edge loose, then fix back on. It also defines the shape of the tarp, allowing very little chance for adapting to different pitches on the tarp.

    I guess I need to clarify...

    In the 1 door scenario that is pictured, you would not need to go through that door. As I think Dutch said, you could hunker one end of the hammock further up in the tarp and leave the other end open. Point it into the wind, weather or whatever and go. If that is the plan, then why have the single door in two pieces? Just make it a delta shape, but a single piece? Just talking put loud...

    I don't see any reason that wouldn't work Swank. If I'm thinking along the same lines as you are, the only downside I can think of is that you would have to take the suspension loose and feed it through the hole. Both the hammock and the tarp. Is that right? Or would it clip to the ridgeline with the hammock suspension in place?
    If you ain't havin' fun, you're doin' it wrong
